Swiss Amateur Latin Championships 2004:
Fabienne Liechti and Sven Ninnemann Defeated, New Champions Laura Hafner and Jan Kliment!
Fabulous dancing and an excellent presentation from both couples resulted in an exciting battle for first place. Maybe Fabienne and Sven could or should have won the samba and the rumba, but Laura and Jan were the more harmonious couple and livelier in the fast dances and therefore deserved winners. Well done!

Swiss Amateur Ballroom Championships 2004:
Tetjana Antonenko and Markus Zunker Turn Pro
Another fascinating battle for first place from the two top couples. And yet again, as in the latin section, the later runners-up, Corinne Roost and Thomas Szegoe, could or should have won the tango and the quickstep. Tetjana and Markus, although not in top form, convinced with a soft swinging action and showed great experience. After the prize ceremony it was announced that they turn pro. We wish them all the very best!
